Catalogue produced in conjunction with the exhibition Moving right along | Nicolas Fleming. Co-curated by project space Director Shani K Parsons and TYPOLOGY 2015/16 Resident Curator Oana Tanase, Moving right along is the first solo exhibition featuring work by Nicolas Fleming in Toronto.
Appropriating the visual language and syntax of design-build practices, Fleming’s new artworks and site-specific installation transform the exhibition space, exploiting the inherent imperfections and irregular marks characteristic of construction sites to challenge the white cube environment in which they are situated. Constructing a room within a room, the artist’s sculptural gestures within the installation include curved walls and the representation of a fountain which bursts through the ceiling, its shiny finish reflecting the bright neon lighting illuminating the space.
The catalogue contains a Director's Foreword and a Curatorial Essay, and in-depth Interview with the Artist by Oana Tanase. An exhibition checklist, full documentation of all the works in the exhibition, and artist/curator bios are also included.
